[Pics] Yaya Dub mobbed by fans at Sam Smith MOA concert.
Startattle.com — Sam Smith, the British singer-songwriter who popularized songs like:
- Money on My Mind
- Stay With Me
- Lay Me Down
…performed to a jam-packed Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena on November 21st.
His Manila concert, titled “The Lonely Hour Tour Live in Manila” became a trending topic on Twitter as fans tweeted about what’s happening inside the arena via #SamSmithMNL hashtag.
Maine Mendoza mobbed by adoring fans at Sam Smith MOA Arena concert
But not only pictures of Sam Smith and the crowd at the arena hogged the limelight.
One very familiar face was tweeted and retweeted in the thousands during the concert and more frequently after the event.
And that’s none other than the one and only Maine Mendoza (aka Yaya Dub).
And that’s not only because she shared videos of her having a grand time during the concert but also because she was literally “surrounded” by her fans right after the concert.
It seems, more people flocked to get a picture of Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) or at least be given the chance to have a selfie with her than go after Sam Smith.
Of course, there were some fans who ran after Sam Smith when the concert ended.
But judging from the pictures and videos that circulated on social media, fans of the British singer were fans of Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) as well.
A lot of fans tweeted they had a double treat, what with a great show from Smith and the sighting of Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) during and after the event.
It’s the second time that Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) attended a major concert after she has become a celebrity.
Last October, she attended a concert by Lifehouse at the same venue and disguised herself as “Corazon” of the teleserye “Marimar”.
She was bashed by some people for this.
They said that she really didn’t need a disguise since she is not that popular for fans to fall all over her anyway.
But last night, Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) attended the concert as herself with her friends, not wearing any disguise at all.
And, a few minutes after the lights went on to signify the end of the show, Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) was surrounded by a huge crowd.
Now, what were those bashers about her Corazon disguise saying, again?
Anyway, stories of how kind Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) was in accommodating the requests of fans for photos and selfies complete with wacky poses were shared a lot on social media.
It seems, she took her time to satisfy almost everyone’s craving to have her picture on their device, which made them love her even more.
One account recounted that up to the time she boarded her car, the crowd was chanting:
Yaya Dub! Yaya Dub!
…just like what Kalyeserye fans do when she’s in the barangay.
Here are some pictures that show just how big a crowd Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) attracted at the MOA.
